Meramac River

5 posts in this topic

What's the fishing like in this river in the Eureka area?

What species are present?

Was also considering doing some backwater fishing on the Mississippi north of St. Charles....anyone fish up there?

The Meramec is pretty good fishing! Just about any kind of fish! Right now it is muddy! I can't tell you about the fishing around St. Charles sorry!

thanks Barry, I thought I had your email address from back in the spring...but for some reason can't find it.

My brother in law is looking for some bank fishing spots on the Meramac...lives in Eureka. He has a deep V boat but he seems to think his boat is too big for that river. Do you have ideas?

I've mentioned your offer on Mark Twain lake...but they just moved into a new house and are now just starting to slow down a little. smile

Catfish are hot on the meramac try baby sunfish on the bottom a lot of decent size boats trvl on meramac. I would launch at George Winter park in Fenton head right about a half mile and go back into the barge coves and hang on to the pole some big cats down there. He could also go a couple more miles down the river and connect to the Missippi current not to bad in that area good practice. For those catfish also use cut bait like cut asian carp sides and cut chunks of drum or big whole shad if he knows how to catch bait all that stuff works real good. I live in Saint Louis and would be more than happy to let you know of other good spots Missouri is a great state to fish when your looking for bass and catfish. gotta go dust_stl@yahoo.com

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
